Dog headbutted me ... worried about concussion.
« on: June 07, 2014, 04:57:13 PM »
A few hours ago I was playing with my dog (Who is a Papijack so she isn't that big) and she was bouncing around on the sofa, I went over to grab my phone out of her path and she headbutted me in my head. Near the edge of my left browbone. It hurt quiet a bit and I laid down for a second in almost disbelief. The pain was mostly localized on the edge of my browbone - not on my forehead so I'm thinking maybe it took the brunt of the hit.

The pain went away after a minute or two, but I keep getting mild headaches all over my head since than (like my temples will hurt, than go away, than the back of my head will hurt than go away.) Whats funny though is I'm feeling more pain on the opposite brow than on the one that was hit.

I've haven't felt dizzy or nauseous at all - but I'm still worried that I might have or get a concussion  :dazed: Of course, my dog didn't seem to be affected at all from it  :laugh3:

Getting hit on the bones around the eye is very painful and sure can make the head hurt so no wonder you are worried but if you aren't throwing up or feeling sick or woozy headed or felt sleepy then odds are you don't have one but I am not a doctor just watch how you feel and if things get worse go get checked out but I would say you bruised the bone and just took a hit in the wrong spot.

You could put some ice on that spot also if you didn't . Our dogs sure can be rotten lol they play hard no matter what the size and ya never know the dog may be thinking wonder if I damaged my head too. :yes: just kidding .

Take care and Hope you feel better just watch that mean dog lol..

I actually laughed when I read this.

You're not going to incur a concussion from a <20lb pet.

You concussion? No. I'd be more worried about your dog.

Physics is on your side here.

Well, it is comforting to know my hypochondria makes others laugh.

My horse once clonked me on the head with his big dumb head.  I saw stars for a second  :laugh3: but if that didn't hurt me, this surely won't hurt you!
